Events worthy of note in the Fargo Moorhead area. Some very interesting events ahead folks. They should be informative and offer opportunities for learning historical information as well as hands on skills for the budding sportsman.

Thanks for keeping us updated, Ed. Those sound like some interesting and informative opportunities. Nice to have that type of stuff available around this time of year when it's a little late for long rod fishing and a little early for short rod fishing.

I am going to try to get to the Devils Lake Outlet/Sheyenne River deal tonight at Concordia.

That should be informative on what is the present status and line of thinking with the project. You hear so much second hand info that the issue get muddled, at lest it does for me.

I hope all sides will be there to get a broad overview of the project.

Will do Fisky.

I hope it is a well represented forum, and not one sided.

After speaking with the Garrison Conservation folks just recently. I know the demand for future water from the Red is projected to be much greater very soon.

This may be a deciding factor as to if this gets the big OK from the feds and the state?

Canada may need to reverse it's position if the water levels issue is as projected? Or they will not have any water coming down the Red in time.

Yup, let the water wars begin.

Water is the new oil in this country, many see that now and are racing to get the biggest share first. We need to watch this closely I think?

Sorry guys, I have nothing to report from the meeting. Why...well...I missed it. I had a friend in the hospital all last week and I busted him out to go home. By the time I got back from out West I couldn't find the meeting room in time at Concordia. Darn it!

I'll try to get the scoop from those who were there on what happened.

Sorry!

Ed

    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!
    • BobT
      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh? 
    • gimruis
      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.

      New 2019 Regulations are out showing a slot increase from 17" to 18"!!
